Basic Safety Considerations
•Take along and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
•Take waterproof bags to protect your gear, especially those things that don't mix well with water, such as cell phones.
•Please avoid inflatables for watercraft. The unpredictable currents and hazards under the waterline make this a risk and a challenge.
•Please wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation device (PFD).
•If you are a novice, ask for tips on canoeing and kayaking, seek professional instruction before your trip if possible.
•Know your launch and take-out points ahead of time.
•If severe weather approaches get off the river as soon as possible and seek shelter.
•If you capsize, stay upstream from your boat. Currents pushing against your canoe can trap and hold you underwater.
•Avoid overhanging limbs and submerged logs that can overturn a boat and cause injury.
•Wear sturdy shoes. Sharp objects can cut bare feet.
•Be aware of hazards such as poison ivy, stinging nettles, ticks, slippery banks, crumbling cliffs and rattlesnakes.
•Do not dive or jump into the river. The river can be shallow with many rocks.
•Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat and insect repellent.
•Avoid dehydration and drink plenty of water.
In the event of bad weather or rough river conditions, this event will be canceled or rescheduled. Please stay posted and watch for updates on this page.
